Rib Eyes & Hasselback Sweet Potatoes
2( 1 1/2 to 2LBS) Bone-In-Rib Eye Steaks
4 Sweet Potatoes
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
2 tsp Honey
2 Tbsp White Wine Vinegar
1/4 Cup Finely Chopped Fresh Parsley
1/4 cup Finely Chopped Shallot
2 TBSP Minced Preserved Lemon
1 tsp Lemon Juice
1/2 Cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Freshly Ground Pepper
One hour before serving, remove the steaks from the refrigerator to allow them to come to room temperature.
Using a sharp knife, cut each sweet potato crosswise into "1/8" slices, cutting only 3/4 of the way through the potatoes so they stay intact.
Set the grill to 400°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. Place the cut potatoes on a grill-safe roasting pan. Drizzle with oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Place the pan on the grill. Roast until the potatoes are browned on the outside and tender in the center, 50 to 60 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the grill or transfer to the warming section of the grill.
For the Lemon Gremolata:
While the potatoes are on the grill, use a medium bowl, whisk together the vinegar and honey until the honey dissolves. Stir in the shallot and let sit for 5 minutes. Add the parsley, almonds, lemon and liquid, and oil, and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Rub each steak with oil, and sprinkle salt and pepper generously over each side. Place the steaks on the grill and cook, allowing each side to sear, until the internal temperature reaches 130°F for medium-rare, 4 to 5 minuters per side. Remove the steaks from the grill, and let rest for 10 minutes.
Slice the steaks against the grain. Place the potatoes and sliced the steak on a platter. Drizzle a spoonful of the gremolata over each sweet potato and serve. Enjoy!
